Ticks transmit wide range of virus to human and animals all over the globe. Bourbon virus is new tick transmitted virus from bourbon county of United States of America. This is first reported case from western hemisphere. The objective of this review is to share information regarding present situation of this newly emerged virus and future challenges.

THOGOTO VIRUS: A HITHERTO UNDERSCRIBED AGENT ISOLATED FROM TICKS IN KENYA.
TLDR
A filterable ether-sensitive agent isolated from a pool of ticks collected during September 1960 from cattle in the Thogoto forest near Nairobi, Kenya is considered to be a previously undescribed virus, which has been named Thogotos virus. Expand
The global importance of ticks
TLDR
Ticks and tick-borne diseases affect animal and human health worldwide and are the cause of significant economic losses and although some estimates are given, there is a lack of reliable data. Expand

TLDR
The tick-borne rickettsioses described through 2005 are presented and the epidemiological circumstances that have played a role in the emergence of the newly recognized diseases are focused on. Expand
Tick-borne viruses.
TLDR
Although TBVs spend over 95% of their life cycle within tick vectors and the role of ticks as vectors has been known for over 100 years, knowledge about TBVs and molecular processes involved in the virus-tick interactions is scarce. Expand

TLDR
No single agent can be chosen empirically to treat all tick‐borne diseases, but these agents may not be suitable for all patient populations, and practitioners should be familiar with the ticks that inhabit their locale. Expand
